Great New Book

Hi Everyone,

I have a nice surprise today, just for leaving a comment on my blog, you have a chance to win this great book - CROCHETING CLOTHES KIDS LOVE - by Shelby Allaho and Ellen Gormley.

This book has 28 designs for garments and accessories for school-age kids. I really love them all, but two of my favorites are the Pretty Popcorn Vest, and the Chelsea Capelet. 

All projects are designed using a variety of yarn types  in fibers that are easy to care for.  Instructions and schematics make it easy for even beginners to crochet these great projects.

A little about the authors:

Shelby has won numerous design awards, and has been published in magazines. When I first saw Shelby's work I was immediately taken with her attention to detail and unique designs. Shelby has also contributed to two of my books. You can see more of Shelby's work on her blog

Ellen, has had so many designs published in numerous magazines and has also contributed to one of my books.  Her designs have been shown of the PBS show Knit and Crochet Now! Her two books are Go Crochet! Afghan Design Workbook and Learn Bruges Lace. Ellen is now editor of CROCHET! magazine.

Shelby and Ellen, together you have created a great book for all who love to crochet for kids.

The book is available on

Have a great weekend everyone


PS: I'll choose the winner after midnight May 23rd.
